This isn’t a latest project but it is a finished one, born in a place far away, there are beautiful little snake like creatures with foxy like heads and cuteness. This is the one I caught while traveling, he is a sandy desert creature and is being extremely annoying asking me to take him on a beach vacation. Even though I tell him it is not in the budget he is refusing to listen he drags my suitcase into the hall daily. Maybe I need to go find him some friends from his land? Maybe a water type, or a leafy tree dweller?
Ok I make amigurumi’s and the stuffing is getting expensive I make these dragons that takes around 4 bags of it. So I have been doing some research and I have a list of ideas I have seen and other peoples critisisms. Some of which seem really silly.
Yarn ends- horde your yarn ends, and stuff your amis with these. I like this idea bc I have a lot of these I threw away lol. But yet there are people who feel that this is not a good choice saying that if you have that many scraps tie them together and make a scrap critter- ok my point to this is that’s not fixing the stuffing problem! Its just adding another stuffingless critter!
Plastic bags- shred the plastic bags from grocery stores and use them. I like this idea as well, yet people complain bc if the stuffy is being played with or tossed around their is choking hazards in them getting a chunk of plastic out, and that the bags will crinkle and get irritating. To this I have wow find a new hobby lol, anything and I repeat anything you use as a stuffing is a choking risk.
Dryer lint- ever thought of how much of this you’ve thrown away? I have. I like this idea- though not for kids toys(the dust and junk) but for my big dragon that just lay around 100% cool lol. Yet here is the critisism I have heard on this. “Do not and I repeat do not use dryer lint it is flammable.” Well duh! But so is yarn and most other cloth. If you put a lighter near fiberfill it burns too. So I don’t feel that’s a legit arguement I mean yes it is highly flammable, but so is fiberfill. And its not like dryer lint internally combust!
Old pillows from goodwill- this just grosses me out, I’m a germaphobe and no no no way I’m doing this! Bud bugs, dust mites… not for me. But maybe its ok for some but id rather find old stuffies and disembowel them first.
So does anyone else have any opinions or ideas I should add?
Sorry to be gone so long, had a family emergency and wasn’t crafting… so I don’t have any new crochet patterns I have made. So until I do, I will post past project and their patterns or where their patterns are located.
This is a bunny pattern from I believe rheathylia blog? If I have it wrong please let me know and I’ll fix it!
